Thank you for the new information.

Shannon's weight for the Escape is a dry weight. When it's weighed wet she will report but believes wet it weighs an additional 500 lbs.


Thank you all for your help.

As to Shannon's Escape, I've sent her a PM asking if that is the dry weight.

I generally do not correct submitted information unless I hear from the poster.

Thanks for your help.. I believe we'll gradually get it correct. Many postings have been updated and improved by the owners over time. Thank you to everyone for making it better.

This is a great spreadsheet, thank you Norm, for taking this on. I see that luvrOlife listed a UHaul, not a Scamp 19, so it is a typo. See quote.

Additional information for my entry: Scamp: 19D, weight: ~3000 lbs, Tacoma tow rating: 6500 lbs, Notes: Tow package, Towing speed 60 - 65, Mileage: 16.5MPG (flat Interstate), 14MPG hilly backroads of Appalachia

We just got back from Panhandle after two weeks+ of enjoying the warmth. However, well below freezing on the way down and on the way up. The Scamp got great accolades, from thumbs-up on the road, to "cute" at the campsites.

Thanks,
Paul

There's no doubt that people find our trailers cute though I'm sure they wonder how we do it. As we travel around NA people are forever stopping by for visits; they really have a hard time believing we travel for such long, extended periods.

If we weren't so sure of ourselves I'd begin to wonder if we're missing something.We all have such large living spaces that it's hard for most to imagine living a living space the size of a typical American bathroom.

Even our RV friends, mostly with larger rigs, can conceive how we fit in our 44" Scamp 16 bed or travel with minimum 'stuff'.

Thriving on change, and embracing new is a valuable skill for a full time Rver. Cute isn't it.....

Off topic but WTH, we move from a too big house filled with way too much stuff to our Lil Snoozy for five months/year. The simplicity and lack of "stuff" to take care of = Freedom! I feel like all that crap back home owns me.

We're hoping to downsize soon though, to a house a third the size of our current one. Living in the Snoozy showed us the way!

Denny,

It's really a step process. When our kids left home we went from a huge house (4000 sq feet) to our beach cottage (1500), from that to a motorhome (256) and now to a Scamp 16 (92). The Park model is a little reversalthe living space is 450 square feet and the Florida room another 400 square feet. Of course most of the year we're in our Scamp 15, cheerfully happy in the space; I suppose because we have the world to ourselves.

Thanks for the update Mark.

Speed definitely effects mpg. We only drive between 50-60, pm only faster on the Interstates.
